I agree but unfortunately, as the other poster said, he is villified everywhere and is blamed for everything that goes wrong. People have short memories. He may have accomplished a lot but people want to see what has happened lately and they'll all bring up Seattle and Donaghy.
Not only that but he's getting old. Commissioners usually don't last much longer than their 70th birthday and with a good cba in place, he will have accomplished his final goal.
